If you're in Seminole and you want to take your pup somewhere nice, check out the Boca Ciega Millennium Dog Park. This 1.5-acre, fenced park is a great place to let Fido off his leash for some mutts-needed exercise. The park is clean and well-maintained. Water is available year-round here, but you'll need to supply your own waste baggies. The park has separate areas for small and large dogs, as well as some agility equipment where your pooch can train, play, or just strut his stuff. The trees in this grassy park provide shade for those hot summer days, too. Don't fur-get to bring Fido's favorite toy!
In this neighborhood, which is situated in northern Seminole, you'll find another dog park called Walsingham Dog Park. The great thing about this park is that it includes three separate areas, two of which are for large pups, with another for small breeds. With a view over the Walsingham Lake and six-foot tall fences, this place is a paradise for your pooch! If you don’t like the fenced area, feel free to tackle the six miles of trail outside it. Your pup needs to be leashed on the trails, though. Water and waste bags are provided at the dog park, so no need to bring anything except for lots of energy.

Waste bags are available here in addition to trash stations, but make sure you bring enough water.
